Thursday Thirteen #25

Thirteen Interesting Facts
1. If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.

2. A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes. (Can I be a pig in my next life?!)

3. A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death.

4. The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.

5. The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the length of a football field.

6. The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.

7. Some lions mate over 50 times a day. (I still want to be a pig in my next life...quality over quantity)

8. Butterflies taste with their feet.

9. The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.

10.Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed people. (If you're ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)

11. Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.

12. An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

13. Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure .

I'm just glad that I am not a cross between a Male Preying Mantis and a Cockroach!
After sex, I would starve!!!

WOW... what else can I say. That is whole lot of useless information and I am going to share it all.

MamaLee said...

I figured that about an ostrich's eyeball. They skeeve me nevertheless!

Happy TT!

Bonobos have sex for pleasure. I don't believe the added dangers of being left handed. It's not like I can't learn to use my right hand for tools designed to be used right handed. Hmph. :P

Happy TT.

Genevieve said...

That's a lot of interesting facts about sex!

That is interesting about dolphins. I never would have guessed that!

Callie Ann said...

Wow these are crazy. I wonder what your rating is now since you said Farted. ha ha ha

Kai said...

And she said death and orgasm too Callie! hehe

Who on earth got tasked with the pig research project? And I thought MY job was bad! :-)

Nicholas said...

Look at item 13. That means that if you come back as a pig, not a human or a dolphin, you won't get any pleasure from your 30 minute orgasms!

Mom not Mum said...

Better to be the lion then the praying mantis I say.

Mags said...

I would like to know who's the poor schlep who had to figure out how long a pig's orgasm is.

Gattina said...

I think I also know people who's eyes are bigger then their brain !
Are you sure all humans have sex for pleasure ???

Not So Anonymous Michelle said...

Great list, I've seen a few of these but not all of them. I am with mags, wouldn't want to be the one to figure most of these things out actually!

No wonder I keep blowing out my shorts.

MommyBa said...

I just loved reading your list this week! It's hilarious but they're the facts of life! I can't imagine a lion doing it 50 times until it was featured in Nat Geo! I was stunned!

Yeah...I guess to be a pig won't be that bad after all! LOL!

Happy Thursday dear!

Titania Starlight said...

That sure was an interesting T13! Imagine if an elephant could jump? Yeow! :o)~

Morgen said...

So, would butterfly man have really strong tongues on his feet?

JAM said...

I guess that's nature's concession to pigs for having to become bacon.

Thorne said...

What a wonderful list of fun facts. I'm off to the spellbooks, now. I want to be a dolphilionipig.

Neila said...

Oh sister, I so want to be a pig. Oink! Oink!

I Was Born2Cree8 said...

These are good ones, for sure.

I didn't get my T13 up today, dang. Oh well, maybe next week. I had a good idea for it though. haha

I've tagged you with a meme. Hope you don't mind. Check out my blog for the instructions and see if you want to do it.

Have a great day!

This was going around at my office a few years back and we all loved it! Good to see it again as I'd forgotten how incredibly funny it is!

Gardener Greg said...

Is that why they say im a pig?

Hil-a-rious! Thanks so much for the great laugh. Spent the whole day at the tax office *sigh* - you made my day.

Piggy Sanni (or was it "elephant"?!)
